GoldRush is an excellent keeper, all-purpose apple, and as rich in color as it is in taste. Its skin is gold, often mixed with some red and green, and its combination of sweet and tart make it a spicy, complex treat. This crunchy, aromatic apple is a late-season variety, ready for picking in October. 

Current Sale Size: 1/2" caliper*, 5-6 ft. bare-root transplant
* Update: these were upgraded by the nursery to 1/2" caliper, feathered (FTH) stock, meaning they'll have already have some mature branches. We had them previously listed as 5/8-3/4". 

RootstockEMLA-111. Cross pollination required. Produces a vigorous semi-dwarf tree that are well anchored, resistant to collar rot and woolly aphids. A good selection for heavy, poorly drained soils.
